The red carpet is being hoovered and the bottles of champagne are on ice, as the final touches are put to the celeb-packed event.
It is the third time the MOBOs - Music Of Black Origin - have been held in the city, after the 2009 and 2011 events in Glasgow were such a great success.
We'll have special online coverage of the event here on EveningTimes.co.uk so check back later this evening to see who's won all the awards and view pictures of the stars
The cream of the urban music world - including R&B superstar Jason Derulo - will return to Glasgow tonight, while millions of people will watch on TV.
The 24-year-old singer is expected to appear at the ceremony, where he has been nominated as Best International Act.
For the first time, the awards will be held at the new Hydro arena and organisers are promising one of the most glittering line-up of stars Glasgow has ever seen.
Radio stars Trevor Nelson and Sarah-Jane Crawford will host the celebrations at the urban music event.
MOBOs founder Kanya King said Glasgow "feels like a home from home" for the MOBOs.
She added: "It's a city with a thirst for live music. MOBO wouldn't be where we are today if it hadn't been for the support of Scotland and Glasgow.
"MOBO is all about diversity and this is the perfect mix of long-standing and new UK talent paving the way forward for UK music."
Also performing tonight will be the likes of Iggy Azalea, Rudimental and Tinie Tempah.
Meanwhile, Laura Mvula, who is nominated for four awards, will also be performing at the star-studded ceremony.
The talented star is nominated for Best Female, Best Video, Best Album for Sing To The Moon, and Best Soul/RnB act.
Also on the guest list are celebs, including girl band Stooshe, So Solid Crew, Wretch 32, and Wiley.
The evening will see 13 MOBO Awards presented, with stars Disclosure, Rudimental, Jessie J and Jessie Ware all in the running for one of the coveted gongs.
Performances will feature trampolines, gymnasts, special guest vocalists, dance troupes, and a fairground.
Tonight's awards will be the first multi-artists, televised event at the newly-opened Hydro.
Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said "This is another fantastic achievement for the city to be able to attract the MOBOs for the third time.
"In terms of the number of attendances, we will be on a par with the O2 Arena in London and Madison Square Gardens in New York.It fits perfectly with the city of Glasgow."
